Just to say sorry, but I don't understand this follow-up. The point about using a dataset that everyone can access for examples is that anyone who cares can see exactly and concretely what happens with specific syntax. I don't understand what is implied by this discussion with its counterfactuals about what the data might be. At this moment, I am away from Stata 11 or 12 and cannot experiment to work out the -merge- syntax needed, but I can't see that -reshape long- is a wrong step.

Take the auto example. If the variable 'rep78' had three categories A, B, C, the command i.rep78 would have created three dummies and after the command "xi : statsby , by(foreign) : regress mpg i.rep78" I would have three columns : "_b_Ir~78_A" , " _b_Ir~78_B", " _b_Ir~78_C". When I reshape long I would need A, B, C instead of "foreign" and "domestic" to be my the values assumed by my id variable (even if I need to run separate regressions for foreign and domestic). > > Thanks in advance for your advices, > > Michele > > > On 16 Aug 2012, at 06:31, Bernini, Michele wrote: > >> Thanks a lot Nick for your suggestion.

In either words I would either need the local `clist' to include only the dummies created from CH in each regression, or to find another way to do that. I also tried with svmat but then I cannot match coefficients on the new variable 'ch' with the observations with each category in the dummies. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
